Governance Exchange – An Online Community for Directors
In recent years, the requirements placed on board directors by shareholders, corporate management, regulators and financial market participants as a whole have significantly expanded. At the same time, shareholders are seeking a greater level of engagement with boards, both to understand better how board members exercise their oversight role and to encourage adoption of improved corporate governance policies.
RiskMetrics Group's Governance Exchange meets these needs through a unique, secure online community designed exclusively for directors, institutional investors and corporate executives. The industry's first platform to bring these stakeholders together, Governance Exchange provides online discussion forums to facilitate constructive dialogue on corporate governance issues. These forums enable community members to share and advance their own ideas and experiences, improving overall understanding of different perspectives on corporate governance.
As a members I have access to a diverse range of corporate governance viewpoints and critical information, including webcasts, white papers, surveys and expert analysis. While RiskMetrics Group will support member dialogue with data, content and objective research, they will not advance any particular agenda or definition of what constitutes good corporate governance.
